Tech Productivity

Issue #1  (Welcome to Tech Productivity) 02/18/19

Welcome to the first issue of Tech Productivity, a newsletter for tech workers who want to get stuff done.

This will never be a long newsletter, because that would defeat the purpose of encouraging productivity. But occasionally I might include a productivity tip here in the intro and shorten the list of tools and articles. Either way, this newsletter shouldn't take up more than a few minutes of your week.

Hope you enjoy the hand-picked links in this first issue!

Tools & Apps

Bit - Where developers share components and collaborate to build software together. Share code components between projects and collaborate to share, use and develop them anywhere.

Git History - Quickly browse the history of any GitHub file. Replace with in any file URL and that's it.

Code to go - Find up to date snippets for common JavaScript use cases.

Notable - The markdown-based note-taking app that doesn't suck.

Articles & Resources

Reading in the Age of Constant Distraction - Twenty-five years ago, Sven Birkerts published “The Gutenberg Elegies: The Fate of Reading in an Electronic Age.” Have his fears and projections come to pass?

Stop Learning Frameworks - Eduards Sizovs' message here is summed up in his conclusion: "Invest your golden time in transferable skills. Skills that will always be relevant."

Open Source Society University - Path to a free self-taught education in Computer Science.

Ten minutes a day - How Alex Allain wrote a 500-page programming book in less than 200 hours.


Have a suggestion for a productivity-related tool, article, or other resource? Send me a direct message via X (@LouisLazaris) and I’ll consider including it in a future issue.

Stay productive!
